Alliance Française du Manitoba and Jazz Winnipeg Present:

Known for their hypnotic melodies, visceral bass lines, and tidal rhythm, Manchester-based leftfield piano trio, GoGo Penguin, are pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka, and drummer Rob Turner. Their music has been described as acoustic-electronica, but they draw equally on jazz, minimalism, game soundtracks, and glitchy electronica to create their unique music.

It’s music for the heart, head, and feet and saw their album, v2.0, named a Mercury Prize Album of the Year 2014. In 2016 they released the album Man Made Object and more recently they have been touring their own score to Godfrey Reggio’s cult film, Koyaanisqatsi. Their new album, A Humdrum Star, was released this past February.

Guillaume Perret is a jazz saxophonist, keyboard player, and composer from Annecy, France. Perret, along with Jim Grandcamp, Philippe Bussonnet, and Yoann Serra, make up Guillaume Perret and the Electric Epic, a contemporary avant-fusion Zeuhl super-group who have released four albums, the most recent being 2014’s Open Me. Perret’s solo album, Free, was released in 2016.
